Congress leader Hardik Patel on Sunday alleged that while the health officials are demanding safety equipment, the government is giving them a “PR event”.

Hardik was referring to the government event under which Indian Air Force’s Sukhoi-30 fighter planes conducted a flypast over Ahmedabad city with helicopters showering flower petals on Ahmedabad Civil Hospital & SVP Hospital. The IAF band performed a song to acknowledge health workers’ services during the pandemic.

In a Twitter post in written in Hindi, the Patidar quota agitation spearhead said that if at all the government wanted to take help of the defence forces, similar energy and resources could have been employed to help lakhs of stranded labourers reach their homes.“Corona warriors demand safety equipment from the government, but they get a PR event in return,” Hardik tweeted.
